State Board Of Education To Review Commissioner Candidates

Kentucky Department of Education

The Kentucky Board of Education is meeting for its annual retreat and plans to review candidates for a new state education commissioner and discuss appointment of an interim commissioner.

The board meets Wednesday morning in Frankfort. The Education Department said in a news release the board plans to spend much of the morning in closed session with the firm hired to conduct the search for a new commissioner.

Commissioner Terry Holliday is retiring Aug. 31.

After returning to open session, action on an interim commissioner will be considered.

The board's regular meeting is scheduled for Thursday.
